I have a feeling this Madewell windowpane print skirt is going to be in constant rotation this season. I bought it a few weeks ago during a last minute shopping trip. I’m not sure I can call it a “trip” though, because I spent all my money within twenty minutes (J.Crew and Madewell get me every time) and promptly left before I convinced myself to do more damage. I thought about “just looking” at other stores, but we all know “just looking” turns into spending an unfortunate amount of money.
I love the classic, preppy vibe this skirt gives off. I was already envisioning it with a crisp, white button-down shirt in the checkout line. For me, these are the theme colors of fall. You can never go wrong mixing neutrals, and adding a good print never hurts! When it starts to get chilly, an all-black or patterned tight will be a welcome addition to this fall uniform.
Speaking of uniforms, I went to Catholic school my entire life, so that meant twelve years of uniforms. When I graduated high school, I could not wait to go off to college and pick out cute outfits for class. That got old fast, when I realized that nobody else dressed up for class. I remember the first day of college strategically planning my outfit before class, leaving my dorm, and instantly wishing I had just worn a pair of Nike shorts and V-neck tee. Today’s outfit makes me nostalgic for the days of uniforms, and is a reminder of how easy it was to get dressed without thinking when I grew up.
